Total Time

For our 5 year olds lunch box for either snack time or lunch for his first year at kindergarten that are reasonably healthy but will bring a smile to his face when he finds them. Snacks cannot have peanuts or peanut butter this year. This recipe would also be good for long car trips.

I made up a batch of these for school lunch boxes. They are very good! We like these better than the ones with the peanut butter.

Yum, yum, yum. I'm a teacher and I loved this in my lunchbox today. I used garden vegetable cream cheese and omitted the raisins, but it still was a tasty snack. I've had celery with peanut butter before but never cream cheese - great idea! Thanks for sharing.
